THROUGH MY EYES: A LOOK AT THE HISTORY OF LANCASTER FROM A BLACK PERSPECTIVE by Hollie Saunders offers an engaging chronicle of the author's southeastern Ohio hometown. She takes her readers on an enlightening journey that moves beyond a family history, extending from the earliest settling of the town, through the late 50s and turbulent 60s up to the present. At the heart of her book is the historical account of Allen Chapel A.M.E. Church, which was such an integral part of the author's background. More than a just a local history, however, THROUGH MY EYES provides an insightful portrayal of what it is like to be a young black female growing up in a small white town while learning to be proud of her black heritage. The author reveals her deep love and appreciation for her upbringing in Lancaster and expresses this desire: "It is my hope that this book will help people remember and thus be proud of what our forefathers accomplished, no matter how small, and then build onto that as our legacy to our future generations."
